A lot has changed in Los Alamos since Nona Bowman first sat down in a chair at the county council dais.
Eight years ago, the boundaries for “downtown” were yet to be determined, and other zoning questions remained to be answered. A case in point: the Trinity site was designated to become residential.
She described the infrastructure as bad, and there were far more power outages than what is currently being experienced. And not unlike today, the school district was concerned with state funding cuts.
In short, Bowman, along with the rest of the council, had her work cut out for her.
“I do think that when you take on the job of being a councilor, you have to remember it’s a full-time job,” she said.
It’s not just going to meetings, councilors need to meet with the public and delve into the issues, she said.
And while not everyone in the community readily embraces the decisions any given councilor makes, Bowman said she has worked to do what is best for the community. Even though her time on council is ending, Bowman said she will continue to try to help the community’s best interests.
